How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness

For psychotherapists, physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, bodyworkers, and educators.

Discover how the body releases trauma and allows trauma survivors to heal deep wounds—physiologically, psychologically, and spiritually. Peter A. Levine invites psychotherapists and other helping professionals to a training that covers all aspects of the trauma response and shows how body-oriented psychotherapy can transform trauma and help restore goodness. Explore the implications of body-oriented psychotherapies in the light of recent neuroscientific findings on how the brain and body deal with emotional information.

Traditionally, therapies have attempted to change perceptions of the world through reasoning, insight, conditioning, behavior modification, or drugs. However, it’s only when the internal experience of the body changes that perceptions can shift and trauma survivors can become fully present and able to move forward in their lives.
